Chance the Rapper joins Francis and the Lights for some light footwork in the gorgeous video for their remix of “May I Have This Dance.” The original track appears on Francis and the Lights’ 2016 LP, Farewell, Starlite!
The Jake Schreier-directed clip for “May I Have This Dance” serves as a follow-up to his 2016 video for Francis and the Lights’ “Friends,” which featured Bon Iver and Kanye West. Both are set in a simple studio space and feature endearing and simple choreography. The entire “May I Have This Dance” video was filmed in a single shot.
The clip opens on Francis Farewell Starlite shimmying alongside Chance, though as the camera pulls back it’s revealed they’re standing in front of a mirror and that Chance is alone. The rapper bops and twists exuberantly across a white platform. Francis returns to close out the clip with a spritely routine that matches the glistening “May I Have This Dance” chorus.
Chance the Rapper and Francis and the Lights previously collaborated on the Chicago MC’s Coloring Book, with Francis reworking “Friends” into “Summer Friends.”
